Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In the paper the problem of detecting and isolating multiple faults for nonlinear systems is considered. A strategy of state filtering is derived in order to detect and isolate multiple faults which appear simultaneously or sequentially in a discrete time nonlinear systems with unknown inputs. For the considered system for which a fault isolation condition is fulfilled the proposed method can isolate p simultaneous faults with at least p+q output measurements, where q is the number of unknown inputs or disturbances. A reduced output residual vector of dimension p+q is generated and the elements of this vector are decoupled in a way that each element of the vector is associated with only one fault or unmeasured input.
